american workers mt. private sector the exact same rights that federal government workers have. mr. harris: and that is that if you're going to choose to work extra, you get a choice whether to take overtime pay or to get time off to go to your child's school. you know, in my district we have patriot days. during the school day, elementary schools, where parents would love to have the time to go and spend the day with their child this bill will give the parent the choice. not the a federal law this will give the parent the choice to take that time off as comp time instead of getting overtime. it just gives everyone more choice. mr. speaker, i yield back my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. for what purpose does the gentlewoman from texas seek recognition? ms. jackson lee: i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentlewoman is recognized for one minute. ms. jackson lee: mr. speaker, it gives me a sad opportunity to rise to acknowledge the loss of one of houston's distinguished citizens, not only hou
-americans like mr. buck and harris county jurors were twice as like to impose death sentences on african-americans like mr. buck. there's a long, long history of racial discrimination in the administration of the death penalty in texas and that literally goes back to the beginning of the death penalty in texas. in fact there's never been a time in texas where there hasn't been a problem in terms of the way it's been administered. there's victim disparity, race of victim disparity, unbroken record in texas in terms of acproblem of racial disparity and disproportionality. the administration of the death penalty. texas has nothing to be proud of. today right we have the attorney general and the da's office pursuing mr. buck's execution despite the fact that now a u.s. senator now texas attorney general john cornyn promised that in the face of this kind of racial discrimination mr. buck would get a new fair sentencing. they've gone back on that promise and actively seeing mr. buck executed. >> this is part of the story in many cases in mississippi too, the evidence we're alluding to in the i

it's going to be a problem, harry reid as well so they've got to figure this out but it's clear the republicans want to make this an issue in 2014 and 2016. >> if several states set up the health insurance exchanges. what i understand in terms of the politics, could you see the gop do this, we'll see it definitely in 2014, move it to 2016 and have that romneyesque line of attack, when i become a republican president in 2017 in january i'm going to order an executive order all the states saying you can repeal it if you want. is it still a possibility? >> sure, the exact same thing is possible. the only thing that might change that i think is, and this is a substantive fact about the bill, that again, no american knows, apparently it is helping health care costs go down a bit. health care costs are going down in this country for the first time in many, many years, for the first time really in the modern history of this country. it's not clear how much you can assign that reduction to the affordable care act but you can assign some to it and i don't think obama and his people in hi
reform the filibuster. the renewed fight after a january bill championed by harry reid and mitch mcconnell made modest adjustments that have done little to remove unnecessary gridlock. the minority has the right to propose legislation. but at the very least they should have to tell the american people why. and finally, we now know april was the deadliest month in iraq in five years. the u.n. mission says in april 700 people were killed. most of whom were civilians. we know that sectarian violence is increasing in iraq and united fears of war. as the drum beat gets louder, we should consider the reality today. now i want to find out what my guests know. survive that had screw up barely. mary, we'll start with you. >> what do we know? well, north carolina is the center of the political universe. you had anthony b. fox. congressman mel on the finance housing agency. you had governor pat mccory featured in your segment, delivering the republican address this week and there is pushback in the state. so just because we have great competition from south carolina with that race with mark sa
. we said that and w and we haven him a letter. harry reid tried to get permission to appoint conferees in the senate. he was blocked from getting unanimous consent the other dae. senator toomey objected. it is a little bit confusing for us after all of these months and years of our republican colleagues understandably complaining the senate didn't have a budget that now that they do have a budget they are reseventhing the idea of going to conference. >> greta: the interesting watching from the sidelines like do. everybody blames everybody else. complains about the senate not having a budget for four years and they didn't. now, i hear from you that what is stopping the budget from going forward is the reconciliation and what stands in the way is the speaker naming his conferees. >> but i'm not makin making th. >> greta: i -- i'm saying that it is distressing the american people watching this. the only reason we have sequestration is because for whatever reason the house and the senate and the president couldn't get it together in august of 2011. so you know, everyone was sort of hoping
by beating the women. >> prince harry will visit arlington national cemetery this morning, stopping at the burial ground remembering service members killed in iraq and afghanistan since 2001. >> time for your brew on this question of the day responses. earlier we were showing you viral videos from this week. the little goat trying to befriend that giant pig, the water skiing baby or the treadmill dancer. >> we asked which v was your favorite. michelle said my favorite was the baby goat trying to get the hog to play. >> albert said i like the baby water skiing video. looks very funny and the baby seems to be saying, yeah, this is mitre -- my territory. don't tread on me. >> albert says the treadmill dancer. i don't know how he didn't fall down. really. the winner according to our web page poll is the pig and goat getting 56.2% of the vote. the baby water skier came in second with 26%. the treadmill dancer last with 17%. >> that little goat is jumping on the pig saying please play with me. show me some attention. the pig says no way. >> what is your favorite? >> i like the waur skiing
-one, but the regular order, harry reid tried to get it started last night and senate republicans blocked him. when does the clock start? >> we want to go to conference, but we want to go when we have a good chance of actually getting something done.the reason we think it is not -- i want to get a deal. i want an agreement. we do not want to go to conference just for the sake of a joint conference. we want an agreement. this is more of a house thing than a senate thing, but if we go to conference with a monthlong stalemate in conference, which ends up happening is people dig in their positions making it that much harder to get agreement. >> that is your lesson from the supercommittee? our motivation is actually to get to an agreement and the decisions we are making right now is to maximize the likelihood of getting an agreement at the end of the day. >> does that mean that you believe you guys passed to political of a budget and they did pass to political of a budget? >> do i want my budget to become law? i do. but they get that in a divided government, you do not get everything you want. we understand
, right? >> harris county, yes. including being a green energy lobbyist. that became a green energy job. >> gretchen: that would be a permanent job 'cause lobbyists pretty much stick around. >> that's true, yes. that's stretching a point. like if you're at a university and you gave lecture on climate or a lecture on green energy, that is a green energy job. so the administration tried to stretch the point. but it really doesn't work. if you look at the actual number of permanent green energy jobs, it is precisely 2298, 11 million per job. >> steve: 26 billion. >> yes, i'm sorry. >> steve: had that created a new technology that would have changed anything, that would be fantastic. but we didn't. >> that's what it's supposed to be all about, a new battery, for example, we haven't got it yet. these are transmitting electricity, we haven't gotten that yet. not efficiently at least. with all this new technology has not been created and the jobs have not been created. >> gretchen: i guess your argument would be that if these were sustainable businesses and inventions for lack of a better word
-making process. i do not care what president you want to talk about -- ronald reagan, harry truman, dwight eisenhower. moral courage is sapped by what i would call political reality. it is sapped by clinical opposition and the caliber and brouhaha nature of that opposition. what happens when you confront a series like this, even though you are in your second term, have been reelected, even though you do not have political concerns for yourself, you do have concerns for others. why do you think my party, the republican party, is still going on about benghazi? it has nothing to do with their affection for the incident or their desire to find the truth. it has everything to do with hillary clinton so she will not be a candidate or give them worry in the next presidential election. what about elections in the congress with regard to the house and the senate? they are up there, too, so the president has to concern himself with all these things. i come back to my original point very seldom in the post-world war ii national security state do we find a president with the moral courage to go agains
roosevelt, harry truman became president. he was thought to be a petty politician, not very smart, and likely to fail. he had been vice president for less than two months and done little to prepare for its new job. and yet he is remembered now was one of our most effective presidents, so effective that a prestigious national security project there is his name. the reason is that harry truman understood and reflected what is best about america. he was optimistic about the prospects for human progress but conscious of the perils posed by weakness and fear. he was proud of america's strength, but aware of the need for allies and friends. he thought of the united states as exceptional, but not because it was exempt from the rules that apply to others. america was the champion of liberty, law, and justice for all. we admired president truman because he dared to build greatly and because what he built was made to last. to honor his legacy, we must strive to do the same. to that end, i pledge my own best efforts. thank you very much. i would be happy to answer your questions. and since i
, harry reid last night tried to get order, senate republicans blocked them on the. when does the clock starts be? so, we do want to go to conference but we want to go to conference will never good chance of actually getting something done. the reason we think it's not, i want to get a deal. i want to get an agreement. we don't want a good conversation for the sake of going to conference reprint -- were what could conference when we think we can get and a greener. this is more of a house thing than a senate income if we go to conference and have a monthlong stalemate conference, what ends up happening is people dig in their positions and it makes it that much harder to get an agreement at the end of the day. >> is that your lesson from the supercommittee? >> that is my lesson. know that our motivation is to get to an agreement. the decisions we're making right now are to make, maximize the likelihood of getting an agreement at the end of the day. >> does that mean that you believe that you guys have to pass of a political budget and they did speak what do i want my budget to become the
where it dies under the democratic rule of harry ried. it is funny how they say republicans are obstructionists? what about the democrats trying to bring down the debt -- what the democrats are trying to do to bring down the debt? they started going crazy with trying to pass every program they could, including two wars. wall street journal" is reporting about the south korean president coming to visit the united states -- steve in florida is our next caller on our line for republicans. go ahead. caller: thank you. i applaud speaker boehner's effort to save us some money. although i think it is more political than anything. i think congress is interested in preserving the liberty of our country and doing what is right. we go in to a national sales tax where we get rid of the income tax and fees irs, that is a way we preserve our liberty -- rather than us working hard and the government gets the first cut. it is a form of slavery, really. justt fee lif peol -- i feel if people want to check it out, we need more support. we need to have the money in hand for people and let them
was a personal friend of harry truman. and barney frank know each other for a long time. barney makes a speech at the press club in the spring of '09 inviting small banks to participate in the process. fein picks it up. thanks him. they start back channel. ends up in frank's office. frank said i need you. cam, let's make a deal. they make a deal. fein will keep it neutral on the consumer protection agency. and frank will embrace an amendment to change the formula for fdic payments. change it in a way that saves the community banks $1.5 billion. >> so a billion and a half of money paid for the fdic shifts from small banks to big banks in return for neutrality. >> which is huge for barney. >> they stayed neutral. >> what do you think about that? is that good? is that the way we should be making law in america? >> there's a lot that's not good about the way we make laws in america. this is democracy. we make trades, compromises and pull it together. this is not new. it has been going on for years. >> he didn't tell us about that. >> look, cam did well by his people. he did what he was supposed to
older than you folks. i have been watching the president since harry truman. i think this whole thing about benghazi is very clear. if you remember back to the second presidential debate when mr. romney was debating mr. obama, he did not bring up the question of benghazi. it was my understanding that he received an intelligence agency briefing prior to that debate. most of the material concerning benghazi was classified. i was wondering if that was the reason he did not bring it up because he no was classified. as far as what actually happened, i think that is abundantly clear mr. obama got beat in the first debate and could not take another beating. they tried to cover it up and make it look like it was something other than what it really was. it was because he did not need to get creamed in another debate. he lied about it and it is that clear. definitely, we see that discussion in the hearing yesterday with the other side of the aisle talking about this classified aspect. most of the stuff was not classified. it has been put under the shroud by this administration. out wass narrati
